I know how surveys work. The conclusion that "guns actually stop a ****-ton of violence!" isn't a valid one to take from this survey data. Bad, bad methodology. 45 people self-reporting inflated numbers is a horrible way to measure crime statistics.

Use other studies, most gun violence occurs within Gun Free Zones.

Use your head, a gun using criminal would rather target unarmed civilians over CCW citizens.

If you are a liberal you are likely really stupid when it comes to guns so read this blog:

he's also a part of the celebrity anti-vaccination crowd, so I don't think anyone should take what he says seriously

I've read several articles and interviews with Jim Carrey. A prime example of what happens when a colossal ego-maniac chimes in about things he knows nothing about.

And he's a ****ing loon on top of it.

no. that's absurd and I find it silly how people have been making that point

but b****ing about america's gun culture and then making loads of films where you frequently use a gun and kill loads of people is pretty hypocritical since films glorifying guns and violence in general have to be included when you talk about gun culture.

maybe firing a gun should only happen in fiction

I can't name one movie Jim Carrey has wielding a gun in and I'm not going to count the tommy gun in the Mask. He hasn't profited from violence in movies.
